WWE has been going through some major changes over the last few months, but it appears that the company is very much looking ahead to the future. Today WWE announced that the NXT brand will be expanding with the launch of NXT Europe in 2023. Recently there’s been a lot of speculation regarding the future of the NXT UK brand, and FoxNews.com is reporting that the brand will be going on hiatus for a few months.

The official announcement also notes that a premium live event called Worlds Collide will air live on Sunday, September 4 and the event will feature talent from NXT and NXT UK. The full announcement reads as follows:

“WWE announced today that the NXT brand will grow internationally with the creation of an all-new NXT Europe, with the launch planned for 2023.

“Following the success of our live events and talent identification efforts throughout all of Europe, we believe this is the perfect time to expand NXT beyond the UK,” said Shawn Michaels, WWE Vice President of Talent Development Creative.

Launched in 2016, NXT UK has received critical acclaim and developed WWE main roster talent such as Rhea Ripley, Doudrop, Gunther and Butch. NXT Europe will reimagine the brand and its talent pipeline with a Pan European focus.

Prior to the debut of NXT Europe, Worlds Collide, a premium live event featuring NXT and NXT UK Superstars, will be presented live on Sunday, September 4 at 4 p.m. ET on Peacock in the United States and WWE Network everywhere else.”
